Our Beloved and Powerfully Exquisite Children

Responsibility

One of the principles for the Aziza journey is Responsibility. Please talk to our young people about what it means to be responsible. Consider examples of being responsible not only for belongings and other tangible items, but also what it means to be responsible for one's emotional and mental well-being as well.

"Today, more than ever before, life must be characterized by a sense of Universal responsibility, not only nation to nation and human to human, but also human to other forms of life."
Dalai Lama

The next Aziza Sleepover is May 17th - May 18th!

Let the Sweat of your Brow be the Announcement of your Work!

The Cascade 5K is Saturday, May 18th. Please consider taking the time out of your schedule to run with the Aziza. We would like enough adults present to account for all of our children to keep them both safe and encouraged. If you don't feel like you can run for the full 3.1 miles - don't worry, neither can they. We just want to give them the opportunity to experience the satisfaction of training for and completing a challenging task. How much more would it mean to them if you experienced it right alongside them?? Please visit the Cascade 5K website and click on the picture for the full training schedule.

Aziza Fundraising!

We have lots of fun stuff coming up, including our 5K next weekend; and those fun things cost money. What we would like to do, rather than continuously tax the parents for funds, is to have the Aziza become more responsible for earning the money needed for the upcoming events.
Beginning this Friday, the Aziza will begin a fundraiser. For this fundraiser, the children will offer up their services to the community in the form of chore coupons. Patrons can buy $1, $2, $5, or $10 chore coupons redeemable at any time within the next calendar year. We will prepare the fundraising form and coupons and provide them to the parents and Aziza this Friday. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.
